Taylor will look to retain his World Grand Prix title in Dublin in October
Phil Taylor retained his South African Masters title with victory over James Wade in the final in Johannesburg.
The 49-year-old, who earlier defeated Christo Meiring and John Part to reach the final, won 6-4 against the world number two from Aldershot.
"I'm delighted to have won the South African Masters again," said Taylor, who took the title for a third time.
"I love coming out here and playing in South Africa. It's a good tournament," added the Stoke-on-Trent player.
Earlier, Mervyn King hit a nine-darter in his semi-final, but was unable to make it through against Wade.
Taylor's next event is the World Grand Prix in Dublin, which takes place between October 5-11, with the world number one in search of a ninth Grand Prix victory.
